Deposit & Housing

Make Your Deposit—Secure Your Spot

Residence halls are expected to fill up quickly! Before you join us on campus, you’ll need to submit a matriculation fee (deposit) of $200.

Here’s what happens after you pay your deposit:

  • You’ll receive a housing form to indicate your housing preferences and roommate (if you’ve already selected one).
  • We put you in the system so our staff can start the course scheduling process.
  • You’ll receive info about getting started at Taylor and about Summer Orientation.

*Please note that all new students are required to live on campus unless they are commuting from their parents’ home.

The matriculation fee deadline for fall admission is May 1. A new or readmitted student who cancels prior to May 1 will receive a full refund.

How to Pay Your Deposit

Online: Pay the matriculation fee online with a credit card.

Campus Housing

Do you have a residence hall you’d prefer to live in while at Taylor? Paying your matriculation fee will begin your housing process. Once this deposit is paid, our housing form will be emailed to you. The sooner you complete your housing form, the more likely you’ll get in your preferred hall.

Meet Your Roommate

Do you already have a roommate idea or are you excited about meeting your roommate for the first time? Starting the housing process will allow you to choose your roommate or have one selected for you. Housing assignments are made based on the date of your housing form submission. If you find your own roommate, your housing assignment will be based on the later of the two housing form submission dates. You’ll find out your housing placement before Summer Orientation!
